The Barracks Thief

The Barracks Thief by Tobias Wolff is a slim, little novel that I apparently picked up from one of the boys' discard piles here at McCallie. It is underlined with abandon and without rhyme or reason. In fact, I think I will probably go through and erase it before placing it on my shelf - only possible because it is such a small volume (only 101 pages).

I can't say that it moved me to much thought or analysis, but I do think it was an interesting and intense look at these characters and this time. I also think it was probably a decent choice for a high school course - it is an easy read, short, but not lacking in depth.

Overall, a positive taste of Wolff.
